Throughout her fruitful independent career, Madison McFerrin has earned accolades from NYT, NPR, FADER, and Pitchfork, who named her a Rising Artist in 2018. Her genre-bending style led to Questlove dubbing her early sound “soul-appella.” In addition to a stirring performance on the renowned COLORS Studio, Madison has also performed at Central Park SummerStage and BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn, and shared stages with the likes of De La Soul, Gallant, and The Roots. Off the stage, Madison’s music has been featured in episodes of Broad City and Random Acts of Flyness. Working at the intersection of artistry and community building, Madison co-curated the BRIC Jazz Festival in 2021, and in 2022, aligned her MAD LOVE initiative with the Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy to provide some much needed space for healing from the collective trauma of the pandemic. Last fall, she mesmerized crowds with sold out shows in London and Paris during her EU tour and made her debut at the Corona Capital Festival after releasing, "Stay Away (From Me)," which she performed live on The Colbert Show's #LATESHOWMEMUSIC series. Ahead of releasing new music in 2023, she has blown away sold out crowds in NYC and LA.
